This one was first up on the newly listed for a buy it now of $350 when I ran another search a few days ago. I clicked on it to put it on my watch list, and the price immediately went to $300. Free shipping, came in that one-touch holder too. Now I would rather have an old school and/or Bulls auto, but there was no way I wasn't pulling the trigger for that good a price! I bought it immediately.
Believe it or not, after all the stuff I've bought (Magic/Bird dual, all of those Mitches, Mullin auto, etc.) I STILL had about $75 in my paypal account after this purchase! That money is now gone though with one more SICK MJ add that will be here in a couple weeks, overseas shipping...so impatient for it haha.
And it does feel pretty awesome to have an MJ auto, particularly one that isn't a sticker so you know he touched it, as bizarre as that probably sounds haha. Maybe down the road I will try to pick up an old-school one and sell this as my starting point, but for right now I will enjoy it!
I will probably send it in too, since you asked. I think it's a 9. Not sure how the auto will grade. It's decent but a bit of the M goes off the letter onto the white, and he's been getting sloppy w/ his last name the last couple years. UD is wearing him out haha.
Thanks for the comment man!
